The 120 page White Paper ”OE-A Roadmap for Organic and Printed Electronics” (4th edition, December 2011) is available for download from the OE-A homepage. Five application clusters as well as materials, substrates and patterning processes are discussed in detail.
The roadmap for organic and printed electronics is a key activity of the OE-A. Organic and printed electronics is a platform technology based on the combination of new materials and cost-effective, large-area production processes. It enables multiple applications that are based on organic and printed electronics but vary widely in their specifications.
The OE-A roadmap covers:
- Organic Photovoltaics
- Flexible Displays
- Lighting (including both OLED and electroluminescent (EL) products)
- Electronics and Components (including RFID, memories, batteries and other components)
- Integrated Smart Systems (ISS, including smart objects, sensors and smart textiles)
The White Paper gives detailed information on product generations, key application, and technology parameters, materials, patterning processes, and substrates and identifies principle challenges/red brick walls.
The OE-A roadmap is updated and expanded biannually.
If you have any questions or comments, if you are interested in the OE-A roadmap activities please do not hesitate to contact us.
About the OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association)
The OE-A is the leading international industry association for organic and printed electronics and was founded and represents the entire value chain of this emerging industry. Our members are world-class global companies and institutions, ranging from R&D institutes, component and material suppliers to producers and end-users. More than 190 companies from Europe, North America, Asia and Australia are working together to promote the establishment of a competitive production infrastructure for organic and printed electronics. The vision of the OE-A is to build a bridge between science, technology and application. More than 3,000 member companies from the engineering industry make VDMA the largest industry association in Europe.
The OE-A is the host of the premier international conference and exhibition, LOPE-C - Large-area, Organic and Printed Electronics Convention, which addresses scientists, engineers, manufacturers, and investors. In 2012, LOPE-C will take place from 19 to 21 June 2012 at Messe Munich, Germany. www.lope-c.com
